Quick case study: switching to LendInvest for cheaper development funding

Development exit loans are designed for developers whose project has reached practical completion, and are looking for short-term, lower-cost funding while they conclude the marketing and sale of their property. Since launching development exit loans in late October, demand has been high. It makes sense to developers, as our first completed deal shows us.

The detail

Borrower: Experienced property developer

Location: Fulham, Southwest London

Product: Development Exit Finance

The challenge

The borrower was an experienced developer and new to LendInvest. He was seven months into a twelve-month development finance loan from another specialist finance lender to fully renovate a two-bedroom apartment in Fulham, Southwest London.

Having reached practical completion, the borrower was looking for cheaper finance until the apartment could be sold.

The solution

In the course of just three weeks, we worked with the borrower to move seamlessly from initial enquiry to full drawdown.

The loan is based on a 70% net LTV and lasts for nine months with rolling interest charged at 0.7% pcm. By moving onto a LendInvest development exit loan, the borrower is saving himself 30 basis points per month in fees.
